Illegal System DLL Relocation

  Dazed&Confused 16:22 05 Apr 2007

When I started my pc yesterday morning I had the 'updates available' icon in the system tray so I installed the updates and rebooted the pc.

When the pc had restarted I got the following error message:

RTHDCPL.EXE Illegal system DLL Relocation. The system DLL user32.dll was relocated in memory. The application will not run properly. The relocation occured because the DLL C:\Windows\system32\HHCTRL.OCX occupied the address range reserved for Windows system DLLs. The vendor supplying the DLL should be contacted for a new DLL.

I'm running Windows XP Pro. I don't know what application this message refers to so don't know who to contact to get the new DLL.

I have done a system restore to the point before the update notification and do not get the error message then so it has to be something to do with the update.

I would be very grateful for any help with this as I am completely at a loss as to what to do.
